In one word, what is globalization?
Globalization & Identity
Differences in cultures, beliefs, languages, and values can cause tensions between people and countries. Globalization can sometimes lead to a decrease in traditional values and a sense of belonging to a particular group or culture. With rapid changes happening around the world, it can be difficult to keep up with the changes and to maintain a sense of identity.
